Good Guy v.Rat Bastids





cinema à la carte                                 





SHOOTER is an uncompromising exploration of the definition and evolution of a hero. Ryan Phillippe (“Secrets and Lies”) is a producer on the project and will star as Bob Lee Swagger, an expert marksman living in exile who is coaxed back into action after learning of a plot to kill the president. Omar Epps (“House”) plays Isaac Johnson, an ex-Marine and former commanding officer of Swagger. Now a Secret Service Agent, he solicits Swagger’s expertise for a clandestine operation that has disastrous results.




Someone here (?) recommended SHOOTER.  I looked it up, put it on my Netflix queue.  Watched the first two (of 10, 45-minute) episodes.  Mo Sup is pouting now because she wanted to go total immersion. I had stuff to do. This deal, so far, is FIVE STARS.  Thank you mystery movie aggregator (from MoSup).

Based (extremely loosely) on "Point of Impact" (highly recommended) by Stephen Hunter.

This was done as a movie awhile back. Mark Walberg starred. It came off pretty well.
